TheStreet Ratings rates Calgon Carbon as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in net income, revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

On the negative front, Ener1 Inc ( HEV), China Recycling Energy Corporation ( CREG), Asia Pacific Wire & Cable Corp ( APWC), and Asia Pacific Wire & Cable Corp ( AWRCF) were all losers within the industrial industry with Columbus McKinnon Corporation ( CMCO) being today's industrial industry Loser Spotlight stock.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the industrial industry could consider SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ( DIA) while those bearish on the industrial industry could consider ProShares UltraShort Industrials ( SIJ).
